Jim Lockman, father of throe sons in the Furl Dodge schools, said he filed complaint Monday with the Fort Dodge Human '.tights commission and maiii-d the same complaint to the Iowa Civil Rights commission. The complaint names the Fort Dodge school board and Supt. Earl Berge. However, Berge said school officials are attempting to hire some black teachers, coun- selors and administrators. He- said there is at least one teacher who is a member of a minority group, although the teacher is not black. Lockman contends that school officials have not de- veloped an effective program for hiring blacks. He said lack of black educators also affects white children because they are not able to see blacks in professional positions in the schools. Berge said school officials have had difficulty finding qualified black educators because there is so much demand for them. Lockman said his objective in filing the complaint is to force the school district to hire about four or five black teachers, a black counselor and a black administrator.
